Our Mission

Genius is equally distributed across zip-codes. Access and Opportunity is not.

Impact Ventures is here to change that; we believe in the value of leveraging the genius of all people, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or class. We envision an economy where access, opportunity, and prosperity is shared. Our mission is to empower talented, yet under-estimated Women and Communities of Color to build generational wealth through inclusive entrepreneurship, community wealth building, and integrated capital

We believe our communities already posses the genius necessary to lead vibrant, healthy, and stable lives. Through direct entrepreneurial support services, equitable investing, and community wealth building we manifest our greatest equalizer in closing the wealth divide. By creating more equitable and diverse economic systems, we envision an economy where access, opportunity, and prosperity is shared.
